Florida Forklift Safety Training & Certification
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178 -
Forklift safety training and certification is mandatory in Florida. We
come to your Florida facility and train your forklift operators on your equipment. Mitigate your risk by
having your employees take a comprehensive forklift training & certification class.
OSHA mandated that all new forklift operators must be trained & certified, regardless of experience. All
forklift operators in Florida; regardless of experience, must be evaluated for competency at least every
three years. The new rules require that forklift training be specific to the equipment you operate (machine
specific) and specific to the conditions under which the equipment is operated (site specific). This
course meets 29CFR 1910.178.
America offers a comprehensive forklift training and certification program for experienced and new forklift
operators in the Florida area. Our training program covers 30 topics and is good for forklift operators in the
manufacturing sector or yard environments.
Our Florida forklift
training certification program teaches students everything from forklift engineering principles &
operator safety rules to forklift maintenance and the importance of daily forklift
inspections. This program meets or exceeds
OSHA regulations; each student must pass a written test and performance evaluation as required by OSHA.
Participants receive a student workbook, a wallet card and certificate valid for 3-years (unless void by
having a forklift accident, near miss or is observed driving recklessly).
Reasons for The OSHA
Each year, tens of thousands of injuries related to powered industrial trucks (PIT), or forklifts, occur in US
workplaces. Many employees are injured when forklifts are inadvertently driven off loading docks, forklifts
fall between docks and an unsecured trailer, pedestrians are struck by a forklift, or when people fall while
on elevated pallets and tines.
Most incidents also involve
property damage, including damage to overhead sprinklers, racking, pipes, walls, and machinery. Unfortunately,
most employee injuries and property damage can be attributed to lack of safe operating procedures, lack of
safety-rule enforcement, and insufficient or inadequate training.
